|Hume was a logging town dedicated to cutting down redwoods for lumber. After the wood was cut, it was flumed 59 miles down the mountain to Sangor. It is rumored that people would ride the flume down off the mountain as was the case with a pregnant woman that needed medical attention. Hume was a tough place in the winter, but ideal in the summer. It is set in some of the most spectacularly beautiful scenery in the United States. Hume is located in the Sequoia National Park.
